Distributing your podcast to appear on Spotify, spotify statistics

Updated over a week ago

Are you moving from another host to Alitu? If so, DO NOT submit your podcast to directories again as this will result in duplicate entries. See how to set up a 301 redirect instead.

Alitu’s statistics dashbaord does not include Spotify listens or downloads.

This is because Spotify uploads your podcast direct to their servers and does not pass-back the information to Alitu. So, we don’t know who has downloaded your episode unless Spotify shares that information with us.

You can access your spotify statistics in your Sporify for Podcasters account, NOTE this WILL ONLY include people who have listened via Spotify and will not include any other distibution platforms you ahve shared your RSS feed with

You can easily find the link to submit your podcast to Spotify in the Alitu dashboard under Settings > Podcast Distribution tab

  1. Click the Connect with Spotify button

    Log in to Spotify for Podcasters with your Spotify account, or choose SIGN UP if you don’t have a Spotify account yet.

  2. Once you’re signed in, click Your Dashboard from this page

  3. Click the GET STARTED button

  4. Paste in your Alitu RSS feed and hit NEXT

  5. Click Send code and Spotify will send a verification email to the address in your RSS feed. Copy the 8-digit code from that email and paste in the submit form.

  6. Add podcast info like the category, language, and country.

  7. Review the info then click SUBMIT.

Once you click SUBMIT, Spotify will provide your podcast’s Spotify URL. It can take a couple of days for your podcast to show in the app and search results.

You need to have published an episode in Alitu before you can submit your RSS feed to Spotify.

Note: If you ever make a mistake (or want to update your podcast artwork, show description, etc.,) and need to submit your feed to Spotify again, navigate to the Spotify Podcaster portal at and re-submit your RSS feed there. Be careful to make all the changes you need to at one time because Spotify currently has a limit on the number of times you can resubmit your feed (5) before they will need to update your feed manually from their end.

Please reach out using the chat box in the lower right corner of this page if you have any questions.
